Approval Plan for E-Books
East View currently offers a Chinese E-Book Approval Plan.
What is it?
East View’s eBook approval plan is similar to approval plans for print publications, but with the ease of online access.
How does it work?
Libraries complete a profile containing general parameters (country, language, formats
of publications, special instructions, etc.) and subject parameters. E-books that
fall within the profile and according to the designated budget are made accessible,
at intervals determined by the library. Your institution receives discounts based
upon the size of the approval plan.
Selection and Coverage
Approval plan customers have a range of subject areas to choose from: from science to literature and linguistics, from geography to history, etc. East View seasoned book selectors are highly trained librarians and subject specialists with native Chinese knowledge.
Unmatched Value and Customer Service
Bibliographic records in USMARC format are supplied free of charge to approval plan
customers upon request.
Apabi E-Books Database is a fully robust e-book platform that puts your library in control of usage policies. Titles can be browsed online by an unlimited number of simultaneous users, or checked out for download and offline use. Stable URLs allow linking on a database level or on individual title levels.
